I was 5 hours short apparently.
I said the hell with it and took care of the problem myself.
I find out today that I could have been granted leave under OFLA, the Oregon Family Leave Act, which has a lower threshold for qualification.
The UNETHICAL REED GROUP, did not bother to mention that OFLA was an option.
That is who Trimet has hired to take care of this important part of our work lives.
TAKE NOTICE, IF YOU ARE DENIED FEMLA,MAKE SURE YOU APPLY UNDER OFLA, REED GROUP WILL NOT BOTHER TO TELL YOU ABOUT IT!
